Answer by Anubis * Star
If you are asking this, you shouldn't be breeding.
Too many dogs are put down every year. MILLIONS. Because people have no idea what they are doing, and they decide to play god and make puppies.
Find a REPUTABLE breeder in your area. Someone that shows and health tests their dogs. Ask them to be your mentor. When they decide you are ready to breed, you will know everything you need to

If you're asking, you shouldn't be breeding. Get your dog spayed. Only show dogs should breed. Breeders who show keep the breed standards intact. Do you intend to show your dog?

Wow, I never expected such rude answers to a simple questions. 90% of those who have posted are assuming, and we know what assuming makes of you and me.
I am not a breeder nor planning on breeding. I am asking for my daughter who is doing a paper for school. Did not think I had to explain my life story to get a simple answer.

When he/she has Ch titles, hips and eyes certified, and is at least 2 years of age.
"90% of those who have posted are assuming"
Assuming what? That you don't know anything about breeding?
There's no assumption about it, if you had any idea what you were doing, you would not ask such a "simple" question.

Personally I think that it should not have been such a hard topic for her to get an answer to. I think that yes there are a lot of people that just get real mad and come out rude assuming that she may want to try to breed. I think that it was a simple question that deserved a simple truthful reply. Despite the fact of what feelings everyone may hold for that. But the simple truth is that no matter how many rude responses she got, if her intent was to breed then she will do it regardless of what other people (who she can not see mind you) say. No matter how many people stand against that and are just so free to speak their mind regardless of what the other side thinks of you… PUPPY MILLS AND BACKYARD BREEDING WILL NEVER STOP. This is indeed a sad situation to see animals that have to live in horrible living conditions. But at the end of the day it will never stop. That does not mean that I wont be the first person to call the law if I see animal abuse but I wont go out of my way to start a virtual argument with one person.
If she was wanting to breed I at least would give props to her for asking before she did anything. If that was her intention I could tell everyone that was rude to her or even continues to be rude after the fact that she said this was just a question that she wanted to know for her daughters school assignment that you never get any flies with vinegar and sometimes the person on the other end is level headed and a pleasant truthful answer with a caution or conversation stimulant (in a pleasant manner) could make the other person think twice without feeling like they are attacked. And on a last note. Nobody is born a professional at anything. It is all a learning process. Do you not think that responsible of today at one point of time was verbally attacked by others? Do you not think at first they had to start as some would perceive as a backyard breeder due to they were not born rich? But they worked hard through all of it and are now professional, respectable, and responsible breeders.
Answer by DP
Not the 2nd heat.. She should not be bred til she is at least 2 years of age, and has had all her breed specific health testing done. You need to find out what Sibs are known for when it comes to health, and test for those things before breeding.. Don't breed to a male that isn't health tested…
